Rethinking disputes: Your SOS guide to resolving conflict
Conflict is everywhere: in boardrooms, family businesses, and pretty much any organisation, large or small. Mediators Jane Gunn and Toby Walker team up for this ‘Learn’ session at BIO2019 to explain more about why conflicts emerge, how they escalate and what you can do about them. Toby and Jane draw on their experience as mediators and lawyers and will show that there are common themes underlying most disputes, much that can be done to avoid them, and what practical steps you can take when they do arise.
